Megadeth Tornado Of Souls Lyrics

Last updated: 09/26/2013 01:26:33 PM

This morning I made the call
The one that ends it all
Hanging up, I wanted to cry
But dammit, this well's gone dry
Not for the money, not for the fame
Not for the power, just no more games
But now I'm safe in the eye of the tornado
I can't replace the lies, that let a 1000 days go
No more living trapped inside
In her way I'll surely die
In the eye of the tornado, blow me away

You'll grow to loathe my name
You'll hate me just the same
You won't need your breath
And soon you'll meet your death
Not from the years, not from the use
Not from the tears, just self abuse

Who's to say what's for me to
Cause a big nothing it'll be for me
The land of opportunity
The golden chance for me
My future looks so bright
Now I think I've seen the light

Can't say what's on my mind
Can't do what I really feel
In this bed I made for me
Is where I sleep, I really feel
I warn you of the fate
Proven true to late
Your tongue twist perverse
Come drink now of this curse
And now I fill your brain
I spin you round again
My poison fills your head
As I tuck you into bed
You feel my fingertips
You won't forget my lips
You'll feel my cold breath
It's the kiss of death

I am one of Megadeth and Dave Mustaine's biggest fans. Dave's birthday was yesterday and I can't wait for the new album to come out I'm so hyped!!! I'm currently working on a top 100 list of my favorite Megadeth songs so I hope to post it somewhere where it can be seen by the public. Perhaps YouTube

Regardless of what some of you think, this song is about Dave dealing with the end of his relationship with Diana.
He had a moment of clarity while in rehab and realized that him and Diana couldn't spend the rest of their lives together happily, even though they were engaged for several years.
How do I know this? I read Dave Mustaine's book:
A Heavy Metal Memoir.

I was at a Megadeth concert in 1991. Before this song was played Dave said this next one is about..."Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love with girl. Boy kills girl." So that's that. Nothing more need be said.

this song is not about a girlfriend or a relationship, this is about the drugs, and in my darkest hour was written for cliff's dead, yeah right, but just the music, the lyrics are for dave's x-girfriend diana.

uhhhhhh | Reviewer: jacob | 10/1/10

the songs about a failed relationship, i dont see how you renobs got anything else from it. dave, being dave, always political adds some words and meaning "The land of opportunity
The golden chance for me" it is that land, but you still cant always have someone love you back.
and in my darkest hour was written about cliff burton dying, cliff was probably one of the only 3 musicians dave knew back then that he didnt hate, wannted to kill, was jealous of, or just thought was shit. so when he died he took it pretty hard.
and the solo to tornado of souls, holy shit, ahead of its time helluh.
and correction, its not roderick, its Broderick

i dont care | Reviewer: jgallup | 7/20/10

i dont rlly care what the song is about... i think its about a girlfriend, or drugs. most likely about drugs... this was the first album they recorded sober. but i dont rlly care. the song is sick and its so fun to play on guitar.

Okay the guy above the guy above me fail. This song is about politics. I love this song so much. The one when Roderick did that amazing sweep solo at the beginning at Seattle in 2008, that was amazing.

this song is about her Ex girl friend Diana... | Reviewer: levent | 7/8/09

I watched an interview of him and he said wake up dead, trust, tornado of souls, and the lyrics of the "in my darkest hour" was written for Diana. he wrote the song "in my darkest hour" for cliff burton but wrote the lyrics for her.

this song is awesome | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/26/09

i think this song is about daves addiction to drugs like in the opening line he says this morning i made the call the one that ends it all he means hes about to end his soberenity
and the whole last verse is about how he just feels awfull about doing it
